Tibetan spring starts from March to May. The arrival of March means the beginning of Tibetan spring. As is known to us, spring is a lively and warm season in most places. While because of the high altitude, Tibetan spring is still full of cold, snows, and ices. Because of the block of grand Himalaya Ranges, the humid and warm airflow cannot reach the inner land. Therefore, Tibetan March is not only chilly, but also dry. However, the sun is strong in March, and there are fewer clouds floating in the sky. And the snow-capped mountains can be seen clearly even in a far distance. March plays an important role for Tibetans, because the most important Tibetan New Years may be held in this month, which relies on the data of traditional Tibetan calendar. During this period, all Tibetans will immerse in a joyous atmosphere. Unfortunately, foreigners are not allowed to travel to Tibet during this period.
